INDIANA BUDDHIST CENTER
Mind in Buddhist Psychology
Geshe Jinpa Sonam and Geshe Stenzin Mejay
Taught in Tibetan, translated into English by Geshe Stenzin Mejay
In this series of classes Geshe Jinpa Sonam and Geshe Stenzin Mejay present the nature of mind, consciousness and awareness. This important set of teachings will include a study of the divisions of minds and consciousnesses and their many functions. When we have a better understanding of our mind, we are better able to actively reduce negative and harmful emotions and mental states, and cultivate positive ones.
There are reading assignments from two books during the series: 'Mind in Tibetan Buddhism' by Lati Rinpoche and Elizabeth Napper, and Buddhist Psychology by Geshe Tashi Tsering. While the teachings are not based on these books, they are aids in understanding what is presented.
Class Materials: Geshe Stenzin Mezay prepared study aid documents. They are available for download, along with the audio recordings.
